About Us

Our mission is to make building high-quality native mobile apps easy. To give more people the chance to turn their app ideas into reality. This way we will all enjoy better mobile products and services.

Our company

Our mission is to help bring great app ideas to life. We strive to remove the barriers to launching custom high-quality native apps and allow people to communicate better. We believe that mobile devices should bring us even more value in the future than they do now and - mobile apps are an essential part of that vision.

This credo inspired us to bring Appzio to life in 2015. Just a year later we received our initial investment from Eleven Ventures to create and develop our platform. Since then we have worked hard to perfect our technology to make it what it is today – a cutting edge high-tech solution for building native mobile apps. In 2017 Appzio was recognized as a trust-worthy partner from one of the largest banks in the region – UniCredit Bulbank. Together we can reach thousands of more people with great ideas and help turn them into awesome apps!

Timo Railo CO-FOUNDER & TECH Timo has over 20 years of experience in the IT&Tech Industry. Digital strategy and digital media solutions are also his specialty. He has a few successful digital companies behind his back before founding Appzio. “The idea of building Appzio came to me as a way to allow people to communicate better. Apps are a great medium and people prefer them, yet very few have the necessary resources to turn their app idea into reality. I want to change this and I am happy that I was joined by like-minded people. Together we bring consistently good apps!”
